Fodor's Review

Although its name has nothing to do with the 1980s television show of the same name, this restaurant's regular clientele (showbiz types, football heroes, dangling arm candy) does sometimes resemble a casting call for a soap opera. The interior is certainly fanciful: the Art Deco starting point blurs into an Asian frenzy of rice-paper umbrellas hanging from the ceiling and a supporting chorus of golden Buddhas. In the summer, try for a table on the "dream terrace" majestically

set in a Golden Age courtyard. Happily, chef K. Y. Lai's menu, which is full of Cantonese, Thai, Malaysian, and Vietnamese culinary classics, is as ambitious as the décor; his drunken prawns (jumbo shrimp marinated in an intoxicating broth of Chinese herbs and Xiaoxing wine) are reliably excellent, as are many of the other specialties here.

High end chinese restaurant dutch style......

Compared to other chinese restaurants it has great service and nice decor. It's situated in one of the trendiest and best known restaurant streets of amsterdam. But frankly it's either called a tourist trap or a businesspeople trap. It's very posh and the prices reflects it. But is it any good? No way. The food here is very westernized. And certainly not authentic. The place is always full though...but if you look at the clientel you'd be surprised

how little of them are chinese. In Amsterdam you'll have more luck looking for an authentic chinese meal in Amsterdam's china town near the redlight district.(Nam Kee) Behind the Krasnapolsky Hotel(The Dam) you can find a small eatery on the groundfloor called the "golden chopsticks".It's excellent and relatively cheap. Above it is a regular restaurant that also serves dim sum lunch.Also quite good.

Upscale Chinese

Not your ordinary Chinese lantern place. The food is good, the service is very good and the decor is exceptional. We were there in the rain but I believe they also have a great outdoor setting.
